For over 20 years Venture Arts has been providing a positive space in which learning disabled people make great art and play a valued role in the region’s vibrant and diverse culture. Our unique artistic programme includes a wide variety of artist-led projects, and we showcase the work of artists in large collaborative exhibitions in some of the region’s most prestigious arts venues.
Being a part of Venture Arts enriches people’s lives not only through the learning and participation but also through giving people new cultural experiences: seeing the work of other artists, participating in exhibitions, visiting and working in museums and galleries, making great art and collaborating with others.
